News from GHGES
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing the disruption of our routines and the suspension of many projects. Adding to this situation is the drop in the price of oil which is holding back energy saving initiatives because their returns on investment are no longer attractive.
This year, for the first time, we will probably achieve and even surpass the GHG reduction targets recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and proposed by the Conference of the Parties (COP). As a result, we will come to understand the importance of the efforts required to achieve these goals and will thus be able to avoid the dangers facing us in the wake of climate change. The economy is the cornerstone of our civilization, but life and survival are paramount. If we lose our ecosystems, the economy will be sidelined.
Keep in mind that, in order to save our civilization from the dangers that await us, we must put in a great deal of effort, not just take small steps. By implementing procedures and projects that are steered through rigorous standards-based monitoring, we can achieve our energy saving goals and avoid wasting our non-renewable resources. This is only the first step in the development of more ambitious projects, but it is nonetheless an essential one.
We just need to learn the right lessons from the present crisis: ambitious measures can be taken on behalf of our climate only if society and governments acknowledge the urgency of the situation and act accordingly.
We must now be very cautious about how we proceed to restart our economy and be wary of not remaking massive investments in fossil fuels.
Let’s hope we will be able to seize the opportunity once this pandemic is behind us.
Many people believe that, when everything returns to normal, the world will no longer be the same. Let’s hope it will be for the better.
Good luck to all!

Before taking corrective actions or implementing new methods to improve a ship’s energy efficiency, an accurate assessment of its condition must first be conducted.
This information is essential for identifying the most cost-effective projects and constitutes the baseline mesurement for proving the results obtained.
Preparing Applications for Financial Aid
Enable the shipowner to reduce project costs by means of a financial contribution from the Government. Contact GHGES for more details.
Purpose: Create a culture of energy efficiency within the business.
Method: Meet with the main stakeholders (superintendents, fleet managers) and explain the program framework.
We provide classroom training on incorporating energy efficiency into individual ships as well as entire fleets. The basic principles governing energy conservation are also covered.
Organizing and Supporting Project Implementation
GHGES makes suggestions with respect to system upgrades, equipment choices and control logics. We also recommend specialized contractors who are qualified to do the work.
We perform the commissioning and start-up of the equipment.
Establishing a Monitoring and Follow-up Plan
A monitoring plan is an essential tool for proving results.
GHGES has the expertise (CMVP) to carry out the plan which, in turn, is critical to successfully completing projects and obtaining financial assistance. In addition, the company is able to demonstrate to shipowners the cost-effectiveness of their investments.
